Saturday’s Premier League match between Manchester United and Brighton at Old Trafford was a laboured affair for the hosts.
Chris Hughton’s visiting side looked solid in defence as for the most part they managed to keep the Red Devils at bay.
In the end, Jose Mourinho’s men came away with all three points thanks to Ashley Young, whose shot ended up in the back of the net.
It was the only goal of the lacklustre match, but it was hugely important as United moved to within five points of league leaders Manchester City.
Young thought that he had scored his first goal in 18 months, but the strike was registered as an own goal from Lewis Dunk.
After the match, the United winger took to Twitter to insist that he deserved the goal due to his recent barren run.

Anthony Martial, who has scored seven goals in all competitions for United so far, was quick to mock his teammate.
Great goal bro the shot was perfect ???
